In the same week that Quantegy announce that they are ceasing production of analog tape we have news of new products that offer analog tape simulation. Yesterday we ran a story on the DUY DaD Tape plug-In and today we have news of a new hardware unit. Here are the details in the manufacturer, AnaMod Audio’s, own words…
The ATS-1 Analog Tape Simulator is the first product that uses the AnaMod process for modeling complex analog circuitry entirely in the analog domain. Specially developed analog building blocks are 'coded' to emulate the behavior of a complex analog system. Unlike digital plug-ins or processor-based outboard gear, there is no latency, and no A/D or D/A conversions to compromise the sound. The result is a faithful recreation of the original response, without using the original analog hardware.
All of the important features of a two-track analog tape machine are found in the ATS-1, including speed selection, bias, LF record and HF Repro EQ, and the option of adding tape hiss, if desired. The reference 'record' level, as indicated on the illuminated VU meters, can be adjusted from 0 to +12 dBu in 3 dB increments.
The ATS-1 accurately models the behavior of specific tape machines and tape formulations, and allows the user to select from up to four machine and tape types. Optional machine and tape types will be available on easy-to-install SIMM cards.
By popular demand, wow and flutter is not included.
The ATS-1 features:
  • Two channels of analog tape simulation
  • Up to four tape machine models
  • Up to four tape formulation models
  • 7.5, 15 and 30 ips speed selection
  • Bias, LF and HF EQ, and Hiss
  • User-installable upgrade cards
